Austin Davis, 32, became angry and beat his three children (ages 6, 12 and 9) with a belt after none of them would own up to who had passed gas in the car. Police were called to a home near DeLand, Florida. Davis’ wife told police that one of the children told her they were beaten, because they would not tell Davis who passed gas in the car.
It was not known whether it was the sound or the smell that alerted Davis or why a guy who looks like your average construction worker would be so pissed about farting.
Also it’s assumed that it was the 12 year old since younger children tend to have less powerful gas than older children and adults.
